Carrot and Coriander Soup for Chicken Pox

Chicken pox is a very common disease among school children and is one of the major reasons behind their missing school days. While there are allopathic and alternative medicines that effectively reduce the symptoms of the disease, there are certain home remedies as well that help reduce the itching, scarring and ache. One of the most effective home remedies for chicken pox is carrot and coriander soup.

Carrot and coriander soup has traditionally been used in the treatment of chicken pox. The preparation of this soup is very easy. Take about 100 grams of carrots and 60 grams of fresh coriander leaves. Chop then into fine pieces. Boil this mixture for a while. Strain the concoction. Cool the strained liquid and give it to the patient once a day. If your child likes tomato soup, or any other soup, you can add this concoction to his favourite soup to get them to drink it.

Carrot and coriander soup is easily assimilated into the body and helps digestion. It boosts the immune system and is good for the stomach and spleen. It is also good for skin rashes and mouth sores.  The antioxidants contained in carrot help control and limit the disease. Coriander also boosts appetite, and will go towards the child’s iron and leafy vegetable requirement for the day.
